Great walk, canal side, woodland , fields and a few roads. A mile of A road but doesn’t distract from the walk

WalkingGreat!Over grown

Parts of the walk not that enjoyable. Waymarks not always clear particularly approaching the woods after Baddesley Clinton. Areas of the wood were off limits due to tree work when we tried (Sept 20) so difficult to find correct path. Extra 2 miles added The shingle path indicated after Packwood is marked private which we passed initially but is a footpath

Some parts of the route were great whilst others were quite overgrown and muddy. The walk was nice enough, though not hugely rewarding in my opinion.

Aside from the road walking this was very muddy all the way round. Some parts were waterlogged. Would be a good walk in better conditions

We really enjoyed this walk. It was varied and interesting and not difficult to follow. As others have said, a big plus point is the lovely stopping-off places along the route. We arrived at Packwood House just in time for afternoon tea - a very civilised way to (almost) end a lovely afternoon’s walk.

Lovely walk even in the winter! Navigation Inn open all day for food. Instructions were spot on. GPS tracking tended to drain the battery somewhat on my phone.

First to Review

A very nice walk along canals and through forests and fields; Hay wood a particular highlight. A very flat walk that can be done at a good pace. A few short road sections, but roads quiet. Food and drink can be found at Lapworth village (Navigation Inn), The Orange Tree (approx. 2 hours from Lapworth), The Puchbowl (approx. 3 hours from Lapworth).
